The team at Gloucester Brewery have always been keen on playing with new hop varieties, different yeast strains and modifying the brewing process to brew more experimental styles. These included heavily dry hopped award-winning beers such as Galaxy 5.2% and Chinook 6.4% right through to testing new yeast strains and producing Belgian Saisons (Demi God 4.5%), Fruit infused ales (Cherry Picker 5%) and even beers deliberately soured using Lacto Bacillus (Sour Puss 4.5%)!
Today, Gloucester Brewery continues to brew its core beers such as Gloucester Gold and Cascade in volume but has also introduced a few new ones including 3 National award winners; Session IPA 4.5% and American Pale 6.4%, both heavily dry hopped with new world hops such as Mosaic, Citra and Chinook plus Imperial Stout 9% which won overall National SIBA cask beer champion 2019.
And whilst the brewery started out only producing traditional cask conditioned beers, many of the beers now also feature in keg format and are often brewed ‘unfined’ meaning they pour with a natural haze and are suitable for vegans.
We will be showcasing the following beers:
American Pale Ale
Imperial Stout (best national cask beer 2019)
